“HUHB 387” y “HUHB 492”

The Human Use of Human Beings (HUHB)

These prints were created during the installation HUHB, and come from a collection of similar screen grab captures produced during that installation at Eyebeam Atelier, NYC., 2000. In particular they are ‘double monitor’ screen grabs of a somewhat complicated setup of 8 computers each running their own *CU-SeeMe video chat webcam window and running in a live chat session over a public server ‘reflector’ site.

The set-up of these computers happened as an off-site project for the Whitney Biennial 2000, as part of the museums first inclusion of net art into the Biennial Eyebeam allowed Fakeshop use the space at that time, which was an empty Chelsea garage building before they started renovation. It was a fun process getting the ISDN line installed there.
